Confirmed: Obamacare is an
Unpopular, Shoddy Trainwreck

Townhall, by Guy Benson

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 12/4/2012 12:18:17 PM

Let´s begin with the unpopularity, then move on to the substantive issues. Sooner or later, the latter will impact the former. A new poll reveals that the same people who re-elected this president by a three-point margin still oppose his signature "accomplishment" by double-digits. Independents remain particularly sour on the law, the worst bits of which are slated for implementation over the next two years. In Jeffrey Anderson´s write-up of CNN´s poll, he explains why voters didn´t unequivocally embrace Obamaism on November 6th (via Mary Katharine Ham):

Really?

They exit-polled about Obamacare and the electorate that voted Obama and Reid back in still opposed it by double digits??

Example #1 why so many of us despair over so many of our fellow citizens.

With voters like this...

The MSM won this election for Obama with fear. They made the (dumb) electorate fearful of Romney. They voted for the jerk they knew rather than the fellow they didn´t. This is probably how FDR kept getting re-elected.
We will see how much good will Obama actually has as his policies make their full impact.

You can´t give 2/3rds of your vote to the obysmal won, and 1/3rd of you vote to whatever warmed over crap sandwich served up by the RINOs, so what´s the point. The little snotty fascist control freak got re-elected.
ps, the article is worth reading anyway. Forewarned is forearmed, if you weren´t aware of some of the caca headed our way. Unfortunately the Patient Taxation and Unaffordable Non-Care Act of 2010, AKA obamaDon´tCare, is larded with too much carte blanche "as the Secretary shall determine" for anyone to know what to expect.

The big problem #4 is that you can only watch for so long. Eventually we will all get dragged aboard the train whether we want to go or not.

I was an election judge in a polling place that voted over 90% for Obama. These were not intelligent people. I even witnessed the mentally handicapped (Down´s Syndrome) voting with the "help" of others. That large percentage of high school drop-out in in urban areas are voting, and they are voting for Democrats who purchase their votes with food stamps and other welfare dollars.

Forgive them, for they know not what they´ve done. The re-election of the foreign student is proof positive that, although ignorance can be cured, you can´t fix stupid.

Just wait. The electorate will soon find out what it voted for. It thinks, of course, it voted for a free lunch. That was the promise. A surprising number of Americans believed it. They believed there was such a thing as a free lunch and they were in line to get theirs.

The complications will be immense, ramifying and intractable. Unanticipated problems will crop up for which bureaucratic solutions will be imposed that will in turn cause more unintended consequences. Expenses will explode by an order of magnitude or more. Fraud, waste and inefficiency will flourish, along with the usual corruption. The economy will sag and continue to suffer.

Vox populi vox dei? Not in every single case, not in the short run. But I think the worm will turn soon enough. We shall soon see - if Obama´s incompetence at international affairs doesn´t ignite a major war first.

It really doesn´t matter now does it?

The poll that counted was on election day. We lost.

Could someone please tell these idiots that recycling the same old polls to gin up the base is ridiculous. We lost the battle. We need to move on.

Tell Townhall to stop polling issues that are dead.

So how does CJ Roberts explain this to the People?
"A new poll reveals that the same people who re-elected this president by a three-point margin still oppose his signature "accomplishment" by double-digits. Independents remain particularly sour on the law"

Our meical insurance (HSA, $7000 deductible) has been hit with 2 increase in last 6 months - they toal 50%. Since Obamacare came into being our premium has increased over 100%. Instead of seeing a doctor, we are steered to nurse practioners. Quite the unintended consequence.

ObamaCare had little to do with actual health care & all to do with taking control of America from the people & handing it to non-elected CZars.

FYI... UHC, a pro-ObamaCare provider, has lowered co-pays to docs & hospitals so much, many FL health providers just dropped them. I guess the goal is to take all HC away from working & retired Americans & dole it out, according to their goals.

What is even more troubling is when the electorate begins screaming about an Obamacare `fix` it will be the same people who will be entrusted to `fix` it.

Any bets on how that will turn out??

WASHINGTON — The mysterious American plane that landed at an airport in Tehran belongs to an overseas client, the bank that acts as a trustee for the plane confirmed on Friday. Scott Nielsen, an executive at the Bank of Utah, which according to FAA databases owns the plane, said that the executives had been trying to reach the real owners but “This is an overseas customer and they don’t operate under the same hours as we do.” Clients “can be an American they can not be one,” Nielsen said. “The service is used by all kinds of people for a

A lawyer who specializes in sex abuse cases says this week´s lawsuit against director Bryan Singer is but one of several Hollywood abuse cases that will come to light in the coming weeks. Today we learned of a suit against Bryan Singer, the director of the upcoming superhero sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past and a big Democratic donor, charging he drugged and sexually abused a 15-year-old boy back in 1999. Singer´s legal team denies the charges. Lawyer Jeff Herman, who is representing the plaintiff, cautions Wednesday´s suit isn´t an isolated incident. Herman works as a sexual abuse attorney who previously sued

Mitt Romney returns to political stage as
Republicans prepare for midterms
Washington Post, by Robert Costa and Philip Rucker    Original Article

One rainy morning this month, the man who thought he would be president boarded a train near his beach house in San Diego. He stepped off in Burbank, Calif., and caught a ride to a sound stage, where his on-again, off-again political consigliere, Mike Murphy, was waiting to shoot a commercial on a set that bore more than a passing resemblance to the Oval Office. Looking and sounding like a president out of central casting, he nailed his lines. The crew called him “one-take Romney,” and before he departed, they swarmed, extending arms around his shoulders and angling their iPhones for

Pope breaks rules as he washes feet of

ROME - Pope Francis washed the feet of 12 disabled and elderly people Thursday - women and non-Catholics among them - in a pre-Easter ritual designed to show his willingness to serve others like a "slave." Francis´ decision in 2013 to perform the Holy Thursday ritual on women and Muslim inmates at a juvenile detention center helped define his rule-breaking papacy just two weeks after his election. It riled traditionalist Catholics, who pointed to the Vatican´s own regulations that the ritual be performed only on men since Jesus´ 12 apostles were men.

Ed Snowden, Russian TV star,
hands Putin a propaganda coup

What are the odds? I mean, Vladimir Putin does a call-in show and one guy who happens to get through—to ask a question in English—is Ed Snowden? That is one amazing coincidence—almost as amazing as those soldiers who mysteriously materialized in Crimea turning out to be Russian. In a few moments, Snowden became part of a Soviet-style propaganda machine, even though he clearly views himself as a public-spirited crusader. After Snowden leaked all those NSA documents to the Guardian and the Washington Post, which shared a Pulitzer Prize this week, he fled to Hong Kong and then to Moscow, which was more than happy

Detroit bailout plans just paper over
the problem with more money

In Detroit´s unfolding saga, the only innocent victims are city residents. So if there is any case for a Motown bailout, it is to make the city more livable for them. However, that seems to be the main goal of neither the Democratic White House nor the state´s Republican governor -- both of whom have come up with nifty new schemes to shovel taxpayer largesse to city retirees. Just two weeks ago, Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr had been threatening to put a buzzsaw to the city´s $3.5 billion unfunded pension liabilities to lop off savings to “invest” in city services. Detroit is facing

Fox News Poll: Voters say Obama covering

Most voters think the White House is trying to cover-up what happened in Benghazi and want Congress to continue to investigate the administration’s handling of the attack on the U.S. consulate there that killed four Americans. That’s according to a Fox News poll released Thursday. Sixty percent of voters want lawmakers to keep investigating what happened in Benghazi. That’s down from 65 percent who felt that way in November, and a high of 73 percent in early June 2013.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
